Subject: QOTD for Friday, January 1, 2016

The following quotation is from Dragonfly in Amber by Diana Gabaldon. Copyright 1992. All Rights Reserved. Chapter 6. Making Waves.


"I dinna need help," he said, reaching for the cord at the neck of his shirt. "I told ye, I'm not drunk."

"You're right," I said. "'Drunk' isn't anywhere near sufficient to describe your current state. Jamie, you're completely pissed."

His eyes traveled down the front of his kilt, across the floor, and up the front of my gown.

"No, I'm not," he said, with great dignity. "I did that outside." He took a step toward me, glowing with ardor. "Come here to me, Sassenach; I'm ready."

[> [> I agree. Diana has such magic with words. She describes so many deep things with just the right words that paint pictures, recall smells, make me laugh or cry and truly FEEL what she's writing about. -- Kathy in PA, 11:51:15 01/01/16 Fri

[> So here is my question .... why does Jaime spend so much time drunk? We know Diana does research...did she find that upperclass people were drunk? Or did she decide that due to the multitude of circumstances Jaime would be drinking excessively and allow for some humor also?? -- BetsyG, 07:10:54 01/03/16 Sun
